, the benghazi hearing. gop house members say there is much more going on, even suggesting the obama administration refused to send any military help to save the lives the ambassador and others killed in the attack on the consulate last december. democrats say it is political posturing designed to hurt hillary clinton's chances if she runs for the white house. who's right? >> i think in the end they're both right. policy in washington can hardly be separated from the politics that surrounds it. so even if you assumed everyone in washington had lofty goals about trying to find out what happened, let's face it, this is serious business. this is about the deaths of four americans. this is about the honesty of the u.s. government and its word to the american people. those are big issues so that's a policy. but even big policy things with pure motives have political implications. i think it is pretty clear from some of the ads we've seen, it is pretty clear there are political implications out there and that raps will play them. >> candy crowley in washington, thanks. and a happy mother's

an obama administration effort to silence critics. time and again white house officials said that's not so and never a good day when the spokesman has to respect defend the president's respect for the first amendment. >> thanks, jim. >> kathleen carol, good to have you with us. justice department says we didn't do anything improper. they say, look, we can get your records. you made the phone call. phone companies have them. we can get them. do you think something illegal was done? >> i don't know because we don't know anything. they have seized secretly the phone records for two months of ap phones, 20 different phone lines and, you know, i have no way to know if that's illegal or not. >> attorney general holder said that and the deputy attorney general wrote you a letter saying this, we are required to negotiate with the media organizations in advance of issues subpoenas unless doing so would pose a threat to the integrity of the investigation. they say they were looking in to try to find the person that leaked the information to you of a cia operation in yemen. they said they need to fin

that the irs improperly target conservative groups for scrutiny. it was almost as disturbing president obama treasury secretary jack lew have not personally apologized to the american people and promised a full investigation". >> i don't buy this was a couple rogue irs employees. after all, groups with progressive in their names were not targeted similarly. there's evidence that higher level supervisors were aware of this. and the irs was not forthcoming in telling congress about the problem. if it had been just a small group of employees, then you would think that the high level irs supervisors would have rushed to make this public, fired the employees involved and apologize to the american people and informed congress. none of that happened in a timely way. >> one of the things we should mention is that the head of the irs did come up at some point, i believe last year or the year before, and said, no, we are not targeting folks for political reasons ever. he was a bush-appointee, so that does mix up the politics a bit. and we should say there's no evidence linking him to knowing about thi

an inspector general's investigation. on who changed the talking points on benghazi, the obama administration says that was the cia. as to the move to obtain phone records of the associated press, white house officials say, talk to the justice department. instead of truman, republicans are making a different comparison. >> i've never seen anything like this except in the past during the nixon years. >> i can tell you that the people that make the comparisons need to check their history. >> reporter: so it was worth noting both jay carney and eric holder were holding separate news conferences, carney said while he was baiting for the facts to come in, he said no white house officials were involved. >> what gives you that confidence? >> reporter: then he walked that back when a reporter called him out. >> i have no reason to believe. >> on good faith or assumption? >> because i can tell you that i am not aware of anyone here knowing about it. >> reporter: former white house press secretary ari fleisher said he was doing all he could, tap dance. >> sometimes the press secretary cannot answer que
